Even since we have matched so many Au Pairs worldwide in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen and other main cities, we had an interview with an English Au Pair. From his viewings we hope it can inform some idea to the youth who have interest of Au Pairing to China. At first we planned to conduct this video all in Chinese but then we found maybe it will be quite hard for Curl so we put it in Chinese asking and English answering.
